It wasn't Rhino Records that chose to restrict the board tapes from being downloaded in a "lossless" i.e. .shn or .flac (.fla) format thus only allowing an .mp3 stream (thus subject to potential. loss albeit very minimal).
This as I gathered, came about after Garcia's passing and was Bob Weir's decision. Those lossless recordings of.what went out of the soundboard mix still exist.I used to have some; but one has to already have it from before or know someone who does and is willing to trade with you!

Then why do they still allow the posting of audience shows of commercially released CD's? It's not very smart business.
Who is going to pay a primo price for a primo show if they can get it for free? That's right. No one.
Economics 101 was obviously not taken by the numbnuts who are in charge. It's a real simple concept; supply = demand. If your supply is free, there is no demand. DUH!!!
Anyway, as with all the shows that I've heard that have been commercially release, there is a reason they have been released. It's usually because they kick ass. DP 27 is no exception. Sweet ass show.
Download it, buy it from dead.net, stream it. Good, solid show. Peace and hang loose.

The second set of this show has to rank in the top five shows I've attended. It was a trip seeing all these heads screaming at the top of their lungs when they busted out Casey Jones for the encore. I remember being bummed out that I didn't psyche for the show. This is the best recording of set II on this site so far. Too bad the same lineage isn't available for set I.
The other top four shows I've attended must include my first 9-30-88, 10-27-91, 10-31-91, and 6-17-94. I was very lucky to have caught the Dead during my young adulthood. The imprint they left with me will be lifelong...

Subject: peak experience from winter tour 1992
By spring we racked up 11 shows in a row at the Oakland Coliseum...there are other sweet and strong performances from that time as well, like the welcome-home warmth on 12/11, the onset of the Darkstar on the 12th, Carlos and the Chinese New Year show on 1/26/93 (that one was overrated if you ask me,) or that whole batch of new songs during the Mardi Gras run, and Ornette's contribuion on 2/23/93...
Everyone who hung around for all the shows seemed to agree that this was the point at which the tour became ripe with the kind of energy we all hope for. Here it is, vibe it for yourself.
Anticipation was high. Jerry's people had had to cancel the Oregon Field Trip Anniversary shows in Eugene in August and the whole east coast fall tour that year due to "health problems" and we all wept a collective sigh of relief when tour was again announced for December out west.
We started in the mountains in Denver where we heard 'Rain' and on through the blizzard, (we were some of the lucky ones who made it in time for the first night in Tempe,) to the desert and the warmth of 'Here Comes Sunshine'...Oakland proved to be quite a playground for the kids who dance and, well you know. Darkstar was initiated on the 12th and came to fruition on the 16th. I was lucky to be able to be at almost every show during the last great revival of the dead (IMO '89 - '93) and I wouldn't steer you wrong. I know they say "Never Trust A Prankster", but this time is different. Check it all out, it was a wonderful time out of time, get an earfull, shop around, then come back and listen to this show again.
If you are in the right state of mind, (and even if you are not,) you will probably feel what I mean. Turn the lights down low, turn the bass up high, light some kind of fire and let the sound move through you. I'll meet you somewhere in there between the dark and light...
peace and blessings unto you, namaste
